knowing how much cars mean to californian’s, driving around town shielded by a steel bubble, is almost a religion gone public. one is what one drives seems to be the zen mantra of some californian inhabitants affecting both male and females of that race.
in the short time i lived there, ten years, i got an automotive education about cars i never even heard of. looking for my cougar i saw many new varieties of cars, ever hear of a jensen? an english car. with all the movie people driving leased lamborghini’s and ferrari’s down the freeway one feels a sense of why not me as they pass or more likely as you both inch along in a traffic event. slowly as times passes one by while waiting to move ahead we can see ourselves behind the wheel of any number of exotic cars, looking cool.
heads turn towards us, we are somebody not just another toxic carbon monoxide generator killing plants and people because we look cool behind the wheel of ………………. name your poison. but if you’d like to see something dreams are made of then go up to oxnard ca.
Oxnard, CA – If you have a desire to see the world’s most expensive car in all its primal glory, the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, Calif., has put it on display. The 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, the first of three built, sold for more than $30 million and possibly as much as $40 million in a private sale brokered in May by California auction house Gooding and Company. The Bugatti will be on display for just two or three months at the art-deco-inspired Mullin museum, which opened April 15. Watch for museum hours, which are sporadic. The first chance to gaze at the Bugatti Atlantic will be Aug.10th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
